Adding rotation to boxes in organic perspective.

For some reason any box I make in organic perspective turn out the same. What are some ways I can make the boxes appear more rotated to other boxes?

I think all you need to achieve that is to play with all possible orientations and side lengths of the initial Y-shape. If you have too much trouble with that in the beginning, you may try using the online tool Uncomfortable recommends in the 250box challenge section.

You're probably drawing the front corner (the Y shape) the same at the start of all your boxes. Play around with the angles between the lines to vary the boxes.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
